Plane crash theory on Netaji's death is rubbish: RTI activist

Hoogly: Sayak Sen, the Right to Information (RTI) activist, expressed displeasure over the reply of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to an RTI query on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The MHA said that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose died in a plane crash on August 18, 1945, after considering three different reports and commissions.
The RTI application asked if the government has any information regarding the whereabouts of Netaji post-August 18, 1945.
Sen rubbished three different reports and commissions, dubbing the plane crash theory as a pretty old story which has been debunked way back.
Sen told ANI, "The government's present conclusion that Gumnami Baba or Bhagwanji was not Netaji is apparently based on the reports of three commissions: Justice Khosla Commission, Shah Nawaz Commission and Justice Mukherjee Commission report. However, all are brutally flawed and contain certain loopholes. Justice Khosla never went at the airport. Shah Nawaz Committee consisted of three members and Suresh Chandra Bose, Netaji's brother was one of them who had filed a dissension report and disagreed with other two members of the committee. Justice Mukherjee, also reported that there was never any such plane crash. How can you conclude the judgment on the basis of the flawed and bogus reports?"
Sen further stated that the Government of India's such lame response was highly unlikely.
